Navigating the Transformation to All-IP Networks
Long gone are the good old days when telephone carriers' biggest concerns were "simply" acquiring more customers or making sure cellphone calls did not drop. In contrast, today's wireless, cable, and VoIP carriers are faced with game-changing decisions at every turn as they work to achieve operational savings, unlock new communications capabilities, and meet the increased bandwidth demands of their customers.
Key considerations here include market consolidation through merger-and-acquisition, and network modernization projects leading to all-IP networks. CSPs must plan for and meet the challenges of maximizing value, managing costs and customer expectations to provide next-generation telecommunications in the fast-paced, ever-changing world.
Accordingly, this webinar will address how CSPs, with the right planning and knowledge, can leverage existing systems and processes to ensure that operations enable, not hinder, success.
More specifically, the following topics related to mergers in the telecommunications space will be discussed:
- Provisioning and interoperability implications of mergers and network upgrades among CSPs, including those employing different network technologies
- Systems consolidation challenges
- Minimizing subscriber churn
- Backoffice system integration
